Homes Built for Families
Duplex homes are two homes built side-by-side, attached by one wall. They have a living area on the main floor with the bedrooms upstairs. You’ll get the features you’ve been looking for, such as a mudroom and an ensuite in the master bedroom, but with a price tag that can’t be beat. Duplex homes start at just $329,000.
If you’d like more space in a traditional package, look to the front attached homes. These have open spaces on the main floor that are perfect for entertaining, and there’s often extra space for additional features upstairs, such as a laundry room or a bonus room. These home styles start at $400,000.
A Pleasant Neighbourhood Atmosphere
College Woods has a quiet and private feel to the neighbourhood. The streets are safe for family bike rides, and you’ll enjoy walking by the pond that sits at the centre of the neighbourhood. Since the community is still fairly new, you may have a chance to purchase one of the premium lots, such as a pie-shaped lot with a bigger backyard or a lot that backs on to the pond. Even if you’re not interested in premium lots, you’ll find that every option has its own advantages.
Established Schools Nearby
You want your child to go to a school that will support them over the years. Fortunately, if you live in College Woods, you’ll have plenty of options. The nearby public schools such as David Thomas King are established and are great places for your children to meet friends from the surrounding neighbourhoods. If you’d prefer your child to have a Catholic education, there are options for that as well. Take Bishop David Motiuk School, for example. There are even some options for alternative programs, such as a language immersion program or a sports-based school. You’re sure to find something that’s a good fit for your child.
Easy Access to Amenities
Another great reason to live in College Woods is the proximity to all of the amenities you could possibly want. There’s a Save-On Foods, Dollarama, and Costco. There are also things like banks, gas stations, and doctors’ offices. Don’t feel like cooking? Pick up a pizza at Papa Johns or grab a bite at Brown’s Social House. There are plenty of other choices if those don’t tickle your tastebuds.
You’ll also appreciate the recreational opportunities nearby. Catch a movie at the local theatre or play a round of golf at the Lewis Estates Golf Course. During the winter, there’s even a skating rink for you and the kids to enjoy. Your family will never be bored if you live in this area.
In College Woods, you get the best of both worlds. You get to be far enough away from the city that your home feels quiet and peaceful while still being close enough that it’s easy to get to work. The community is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Anthony Henday, which can easily take you wherever you need to go. The drive to the downtown area is only about 25 minutes. If you work in West Edmonton or somewhere around the airport, your commute could be even shorter.
An Active Community Organization
One of the best parts about College Woods, though, is that it’s covered by the Secord Community League. This group of active volunteers works hard to make the neighbourhood feel connected. They offer valuable information about the community and they plan community events throughout the year. You could volunteer yourself in order to meet new friends, or you could just take advantage of their offerings. The choice is yours.
We absolutely love the College Woods community, and we’re sure you’re going to like it as well. Why not schedule a time to come take a tour? While you’re here, you can check out our Tanner F and Haven show homes and talk to an Area Manager about making College Woods your home as well.
